Such a moving place to visit - graves of those who died at Trafalgar. It's a vivid insight into how hard the life of a sailor was in the early 1800s. There is indeed some corner of a foreign field that is forever England -...More

Quite an odd cemetery this, as its against the town walls on one side and on steep hillside so it's at a number of levels. Not very disabled friendly, sorry. Lots of interesting gravestones, but could use some more info boards by the entrance

This is a nice stop on a walk around Gibraltar town. It contains the remains of a few of the sailors who died during the Battle of Trafalgar. It is a peaceful oasis in a town that is anything but peaceful

We walked up to the cemetery having read about it and it was charming. The info board told us where the two trafalgar graves were and gave other interesting info and it was well kept, a cool haven on a hot day

Small and quiet place inside dense populated area. Walking and reading gravestones you can find about history of this part of the world. Can recommend to everybody to spend few minutes and contemplate past of Gibraltar.

Every gravestone tells a story. Quite moving to see the resting places of people who fought with Nelson and those who succumbed to diseases that we have long forgotten. We take modern medicine a little for granted.
